The Norwegian airline returned a plane to Stockholm airport almost immediately after take-off due to a report regarding its mining.

It is known that the Boeing 737 was making Stockholm-Nice flight. There were 169 passengers on board. At about 10:40 local time an alarm message arrived that an explosive device was in the plane.

Law enforcement officers and medical staff met the plane upon return to the airport of departure. The aircraft will be checked by sappers after the evacuation of passengers.

 Local police have not commented on the incident yet.

Some media report that the plane was carrying a group of Swedish swimmers who flew to the competition in Nice.
